Abstract

"Considering Animals" is a collection of essays that investigate specific "animal moments" that accentuate human relationships with nonhuman animals. This interdisciplinary approach examines contemporary international case studies (including the representation of animals in art and film, and animals' experiences during disastrous events such as Hurricane Katrina, and the SARS outbreak) that expose our complex interactions with animals. In this introduction, Dr Elizabeth Leane and Dr Carol Freeman provide a contextual background for the collection of essays, highlighting the multidisciplinary approach to contemporary human-animal studies. They include a brief introduction to each essay, and expand upon the three categories into which the essays are divided: the representation of animals; our practical and ethical relationship to them; and our consideration of animal agency.
